Tokidoki is a Japanese high school student who, when he fails his history class, is sent to a high-tech history museum that virtually recreates the Edo period to do make-up work. However, what was supposed to be a simple school project becomes much more complicated when he's attacked by two supernatural beings known as "the nue" and "the yakou" and loses the vision in his left eye. After he's saved from the nue by a girl named Kuchiha, he realizes that he's no longer wearing the simulation goggles, and is trapped in the virtual Edo.

I'll start by telling you that the manga this thirteen-episode series is based on, has been running for over three years now. From this alone, you can deduce that it's too short, and doesn't end properly. That's very true, and these thirteen episodes seem like an introduction arc to something much more grand. But despite being too short, it showed so much potential that I'm gonna read the manga. And hope for a second season.

Read the sumamry, and you'll have the basic premise of this show. Rikugou Tokidoki gets trapped in an alternate world, where demons and the like isn't an unsual thing. After getting read more

Amatsuki would have been interesting story wise, it builds up for a big pay off and creates a very interesting world. Unfortunately it's too short, and leaves you with more questions then answers. The characters are generic, but not in a bad way. Personally the characters are why I enjoyed this anime, (However, since they are still generic I had to give them a 5). I also loved the world it creates, and the way the protag travels to it. I thought it to be a very unique way to do so in a time travel anime.

The art is nice, very clean and colourful. read more

Amatsuki is an interesting show. It has all the elements that should make it great - interesting show mythology, intriguing moral dilemmas, some interesting and cool characters, an interesting and unique setting, and some supernatural stuff at play. The first couple episodes really draw you in a promise a good story. What the show gives falls somewhat short of that. Throughout the show, all manner of hints are teased out about what the large plot of the story is and where it is going, who the characters are and why they are important and all that manner of thing. However, while the show builds up read more

Story (7.0) - For me, the story is a decent one. In my opinion, the story started very well in the first episodes, but as the anime came close to the end, it started to look a little confusing, with some episodes with almost no advance in the storyline.
The last episode was not bad, but could also have been better.
The story itself has some interest, also has some action, but there are some flaws like slow progress, confusing aspects,...
Interesting, but no more than a 7 here.

Art (6.3) - in a short sentence: Not impressive! Design and animations doesnt look that good as they should, read more

Anime: Natsume Yuujinchou
They're both about the interaction between 'ayakashi'/'youkai' and humans.

Anime: Tactics
They are very similar: the age where both of them take place and the fact that both have youkais too. And one more thing: Kantarou and Toki are both connected to a tengu some way. And the style is alike too.

Anime: Kyou kara Maou!
There's that one boy who until recently has been living a normal life, but is suddenly teleportated into another world. At first everything is messed up, but after awhile he gets used to the new life. The thing is that apparently he is the chosen one to get rid of the evil that's hiding in the shadows. But all is well when it ends well! In both Kyo Kara Maoh! and Amatsuki we see the development of the lead male characters who are destined to bring peace and prosperity to the other world they suddenly appear in.

Anime: Hakuouki
Similar styles in line quality, one more light and carefee, the other more Gothic, both rather realistic in character detail, both deal with historical AUs. The stories have quite a bit of depth to them.

Anime: .hack//Sign
.hack//SIGN is about people getting stuck in an MMORPG video game where as Amatsuki is about people getting stuck in a virtual reality Japaneses history machine and sent to Japan's past. Both have an interesting story but have very close similarity's. Amatsuki is very slow at the start but begins to pickup as characters and plot are introduced.
